Bamboo Airways has announced the founding of Bamboo Airways Cargo in an effort to develop a larger network of affiliates in Vietnam’s sparse aviation ecosystem.

Hanoi-based Bamboo Airways Joint Stock Company (BAC) is launching with a charter capital of VND20 billion ($833,000), 75% of which has been contributed by Bamboo Airways, the carrier said Wednesday.

The remainder belongs to three other individual shareholders.

Bamboo Airways named its vice chairman Doan Huu Doan as chairman of the new BAC, while Bamboo Airways deputy general director Nguyen Khac Hai will be BAC’s new CEO.

Bamboo Airways is present at 21 out of 22 airports in Vietnam, and at other major airports in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.

In September 2022, Vietravel Airlines said it would cooperate with HCMC-based Asean Cargo Gateway Joint Stock Company to launch an air cargo service, contributing 51% and 49% of the capital, respectively.

Vietravel Airlines CEO Vu Duc Bien has noted that the region’s air cargo market lacks carriers and therefore carries immense untapped potential.
